Opposition Leader James Aylward is renewing calls for the MacLauchlan government to do a full review of the practices of PEi’s immigration program.
Aylward is responding to news of the Canada Border Services Agency conducting a second investigation in less than three months into the workings of the province’s Provincial Nominee Program.
The investigation deals with allegations that 462 people gained permanent residency in Canada under PEI’s immigration system by using the addresses of two Charlottetown homes where they didn’t even live. the two homes are owned by Chinese immigrants.
Aylward says throughout the spring sitting of the Legislature government assured MLA’s and Islanders that the province’s immigration programs were being well run.
